Thor's Day - Jupiter Day - the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion......  there are minor magickal energies today for networking.

Reed Month Commences - The Reed of the Celts has counterparts in other cultures; for the Romans it was flax, and for the Egyptians, Papyrus.  In all cases it is very much a plant with many uses making anything from thatch to weaving, from paper to musical instruments. It was also used in making arrows and to heal wounds caused by them. It is a plant strongly linked to water, being sometimes called the Water-Elder. It is also associated with the pathway between the worlds. Indeed it is thought that growing the plant in, or very close to the house was to open the door to death. The Greeks considered the Reed sacred to Pan; Pan Pipes being made from a series of Reed tubes ties together, which could be played to invoke him. However, this is not something which should be done lightly as Pam as a deity who can bring mischief and the uncertain. They also considered it to be strongly linked to Hecate, and placed Reeds at Her shrines.
   The Reed is associated with willpower, creativity, imagination, insight and love. Weave a circle from Reeds and keep it by you when you need help with new projects or new ideas. Wearing a ring or bracelet of Reed will help strengthen your willpower. Whenever you gather Reeds you should ensure that make an offering lest you offend the spirits which dwell within the Reed beds. It is also a good idea to ensure that you do not gather Reeds at times when waterfowl and other species are using the beds to raise their young.
